I think since you started this thread you should tell us a little about this putters?  I mean do they conform to the specs accepted by the USGA?

What makes these putters so great?

There are so many great putter companies why did your friend decide to get into this business?

Why should any of us even think about getting one of these?

You know, just the normal questions any one would wonder about :)

ya, maybe too many questions, but hey I really want to know if you have the time to answer me.

Thanks!

The "most innovative putter since 1750"? Please tell me thats the time and not the date.

I think since you started this thread you should tell us a little about this putters? I mean do they conform to the specs accepted by the USGA? Even though I am not the creator I can answer most if not all do your questions. To begin YES they do conform to the USGA rules and are approved by the USGA. What makes these putters so incredible is the ability to keep them square. The putter tries to stay square (I believe through MOI but not sure). I believe he thought he could change the industry and got this idea and got into the business. He is a very prominent figure in the fitting industry. I hope this answers everything! Let me know if you need more info!

I don't really see anything innovative (at least compared to what has been tried before) and I would reiterate my query about "the most innovative putter since 1750" part. Are you serious?

Be that as it may, if you or your "friend" believe strongly enough in this product, I wish you the best of luck.

Even if it works as designed, I can never get past the looks of these new oversized putters.  I'm a long term Anser style user that now happily uses a Scotty Cameron style Anser.

As a PGA Professional and one of the first accounts to be set up with Directed Force Putters I can assure you that nothing like this has ever been seen on the market.  The technology behind this putter and grip is solid and proven.  You will see this putter take off and become a regular winner on the PGA Tour in the next 6 months.  The putter completely conforms with the requirements of the USGA and PGA Tour.  I have always been a traditional style putter fan, but this putter is truly BETTER.  I have always been a good putter, but this putter makes me even better.  No gimmick, solid feel and amazing technology.

Lots of hype but very light on details.  If you're going to make claims about the product provide us some valid reasons why.  Who will we see use it on the PGA Tour and when?  Why is it "truly BETTER" than other putters?  Why did it make you a better putter?  What's the technology behind it.

The owner watches this thread so I don't want to get into too many details since the product is still in production.  You can see the putter on the Big Break this year and keep an eye on the Reno Tahoe Open this week...Good chance you will see it there.  As for details on the technology you will have to wait until I get the "OK" from the owner.  What I can tell you is that each putter is custom built to your specs and because of the design it can go to extreme lie angles compared to traditional putters.  Watch the Big Break this year though...Will Lowrey already has one and loves it!

Just talked to the owner and he doesn't want the technology revealed for a little while longer , only know that it's the only putter on the planet that stays square by itself without your hands touching it and the grip can can be installed on other putters to make them way better. If my status as a PGA Professional means anything, trust me this putter is the real deal!!

Also, a lot of equipment is reviewed by this site. No better way to back up a claim about how great the equipment is than to provide one for review! Just saying.

Maybe it's a great putter. I guess we'll find out sooner or later.

Color me just a bit skeptical on the "stays square all by itself" thing though. I can't even imagine what that means.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....

      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
